Chamber, COVID-19 related information

Posted: Tuesday, April 7, 2020

Reliable information during this time of the COVID-19 pandemic is essential and can be found by researching various reliable sources. At the Huntington County Chamber of Commerce, we are working to pass on information about government updates for you, sources of help for individuals and businesses and anything related to health and safety.

As a county and as individuals, we must do everything to protect ourselves and our neighbors in ways we never have imagined. Our local, state and national representatives are doing an excellent job of keeping us informed from various sources. Television, Facebook and email, are all being used to reach us and encourage us to make good decisions to stay safe and stop the spread of the virus.

The Chamber is a resource for all of this information.
